EL405 Project 1 Complete!

It's done! It's finally done! And when Chris tested it in class, he said it was "polished"! :-D

Needless to say, I'm a little excited that the game works, that it's completed and that it looks decent.

Play my game!

Or, if you have Flash, you can download the game file.

An excellent job! The colors and the gentle wording kept me reading everything. I'd rate this a great CST experience.

I don't believe it is a game, though "game" is a broad categorization that only scholars really define what is "game." As I see games move into their rightful place along the Art Mediums, I'm sure the debate will get more vicious that most of us will just let the word go, since 'game' is only a word we use to refer to something. Silly scholars...

Again, awesome job, suprisingly touching for a computer. Clearly their is a greater meaning in it(CST).

I agree with Puff, both in his praise of the finished product and his quibbling over terminology.

Good job, Karissa, and thanks for posting it.

Thanks!! I'm grateful for the comments about its usefulness in CST. I was worried that I was making things too simple or just silly... but I guess this would be a good "game" (ahem, experience?) for children so that they learn not to judge people by what they look like or whether or not someone is ill.

I really enjoyed your slideshow/CST project. I can tell you put a lot of time and effort into making it interactive. I can see the stereotypes that you used in each of the different scenarios. It was surprising to me that I instinctively chose some of the answers based on my own unconcious prejudices. This game would be very useful to teach people, and more specifically children. I only wish there was a way to randomly generate different pictures and scenarios, so that playing it multiple times would be beneficial.

Thanks for your feedback, Leslie! I'm glad that you feel it works to teach something.

I included in my one progress report that I was hoping to make the game more "randomized" but was unable to learn how to code this in enough time. I sacrificed that for what was essential to make the thing work.
